Weird problem

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello, so I have this laptop from like a year ago, it's an Asus X54HR with an AMD HD 7470M card. I was looking to update my driver for it, since the current installed one is 8.901.0.0 from 27.9.2011. And so I did locate the latest on the AMD site, installed it, but to my surprise when windows reached the login screen after the reboot, video signal was gone. Booted up in safe mode, checked the device manager it now said it's a 6400M card (wt*). I used system restore to revert the situation then tried the autodetect on AMD's site to try and pick drivers for me. It detected the card as HD 6xxxM (well f*** me), so I played on and proceeded with the installation only to encounter an error message saying that I didn't have a proper graphics card installed (wwttff).
So what's the deal with this, I wonder? Even if it were a 6470M card rebranded as 7470M, why wouldn't the same drivers work for both cards?

PS. Windows 7 64-bit is the OS.

Try installing this one: http://www.guru3d.com/files_details/amd_catalyst_13_6_beta2_download.html

This did the trick for me when I had some issues installing the mobility driver from the AMD site on my Toshiba notebook.
